People always say that the holiday decorations come out earlier and earlier every year. Whether or not this is true is up for debate, but on average most businesses that go all out for decorating during the holidays want those decorations up fast just after Thanksgiving.
There are plenty of reasons for that. Despite what people say about the holiday season starting too early, people like seeing the Christmas trees, wreaths and displays. If you run a retail establishment and you want holiday shoppers to venture into your store,then getting those decorations up during shopping season makes sense. There’s nothing that gets people into the mood for holiday shopping quite like seeing festive decorations.
The questions remains: what did that business do to get ready for the holidays so fast? Do they have an “in” with the elves at the North Pole?
Not quite. The secret is that the planning for the holidays starts even earlier than you probably realize.
The smart building or property owner plans ahead and gets their decorating taken care of in the middle of the summer.
It Takes Planning
It actually takes a lot of work to get those decorations up so fast. You don’t just drag out the decorations from a closet and start throwing up anything and everything all around the store or business. You want decorations that enhance the space you’re in so that customers feel comfortable. You want the right colors that match your decor and you want high quality decorations that look classy.
That takes professional planning and that planning starts early.
Planning can start as early as when the prior holiday season ends – say January or February. For most, though, it starts in the summer, choosing the colors, the decorations, deciding on how much and where the decorations need to be.
How does that work? With whom do you make those plans and how do you ensure that the installation of the decorations goes smoothly and without disrupting your business?
